Did we reach a consensus?  Not sure, to be honest.

My opinion is to put it all in one guide.  Use a regular structure that
presents information in the same order:

That is more work for not any more benefit (that I can see.)

Also remember not to duplicate what is already in the GNOME and KDE User
Guides.  We can cover something with a sentence and a pointer (deep
link) the appropriate upstream guide.
